After the cottage gets double booked for the weekend, brothers Andrew and Kevin decide to make a mini-cottage on wheels. With its a flip-up awnings, pullout counters, portholes and portable combination table/heater/table, the Mobile Mini Cottage is anything but typical. It's the perfect summer addition!

Project Steps

Step 7

Halfway through, we realized that having the beer cart on the back of the mini cottage meant we couldn’t install a standard swinging door. Instead, we came up with the idea of installing in a sliding pocket door. Rather than purchasing a new one, we devised our own using an old screen door, some tongue and groove pine planks, a clear acrylic panel and some eyelet bolts attached to the top of the door. We mounted a metal rod to the Mobile Mini Cottage, along which the eyelet bolts travel.
